Notes About the Public
ITEMS FROM SANTA CATALINA.
The Baseball Game, and Other
Amusements on the Legal
The long vacation is nearly over; the
schools will open on the first Monday in
October, which is also the first day. The
assignment of teachers for tho coming
year has been completed, and will be
issued in a few days.
Owing to the failure of the city to sup
ply the needed funds in time for work to
be done during the vacation, the schools
open in the same cramped condition, as
regards accommodations, in which they
closed three months ago. In his last re
port, Superintendent Friesner says:
"There has not been a school-room
added to the department for eighteen
months, and we now have one hundred
and nineteen schools in eighty-two rooms.'
Heeenli/ three of them are on half day
time, leaving but forty-six rooms with all
day schools. Unless something be done
to provide more rooms before the schools
open in the fall of I.HBB, every one of the
eighty-two rooms in the city will con
tain two schools. Seven of the eighty
two rooms are unfit lor use, as any one
may see by entering them during wet,
cold or warm weather. Fifty school
rooms are absolutely needed in this city
at this writing, saying nothing of 2,000
children, carefully estimated, who are
either attending private schools or are
not in any school."
There is a prospect that the congested
condition of affairs will be considerably
relieved before December. Bids are
asked for the building of six four-room
buildings, four of which will be complet
ed before the now year. The superin
tendent is away on a three month's vaca
tion, and his place is filled for the
time by Arthur E. Baker, formerly the
Principal of the Hellman-street school.
There has been some complaint that
the vacation was too long, six weeks or
two months is considered a sufficient va
cation in other cities, and the parents
here complain that it is an injustice \o
their children to keep them out of school
for three months.
The Season Drawing to a l'lo*».
'■lie Sportive Jew.l'ish.
Notwithstanding the fact that Septem
ber, so far, has developed some of the
hottest days of the season inland, and tho
month may generally be relied upon for
considerable coloric, there saems to be a
tacit law amongst people at summer wa
tering places that the season enJa with
August. That rule may possibly be a
proper and correct one on the Atlantic
seaboard. But hero on the Pacißo coast
we believe that the Ist of October is quite
early enough for those who bask in the
cooling breezes of the channel to return ,
to their homes.
Although quite a goodly number of
campers at Santa Catalina, as well as
guests at the Metropole Hotel, will re
main at that delightful resort until forced
out of it by hard weather, yesterday wit
nessed quite a thinning out of the great
crowd of visitors at Avalon. Tho Falcon
was loaded down with baggage, camp
equipage and returning passengers, and
there was no doubt a strong feeling of
loneliness on the beautiful and erstwnile
lively beach of the metropolis of Catalina
It must be said, however,
that while the dilletante and but
terfly part of Avalon's population
has suffered a great diminution,
those who remain include the solid rep
resentative people—the class who have
always been looked upon with pride and
admiration both by newcomers and old
habitues as the sheet anchor and main
stay of the island. They are, so to
speak, the Bengal lights of Catalina
society. They love all the sports of the
beach, and are authorities without ap
peal on all questions relating to fishing,
hunting, boating, swimming and shell
ing. These are the men —and women —
who have given Catalina her mo3t en
dearing representation. They are the
ones who know the best grounds to
catch anything from a minnow to a jew
fish. Their practiced eye can tell, from
the ripples on the face of the water a
mile off, whether a school of barracuda
or yellow tails is causing them. Their
information is precise and unquestion
able on all that touches hooks and
tackle. They are wise in the weather,
the currents and the tides. Their local
information is without bounds, and woe
to the tenderfoot who disregards their
advice upon every topic of local spirt.
These stand-bys—these oracles —are still
there, and many of them will be found at
their post even in midwinter.
Weil, it has truly been a lovely resort
during the past summer. A great many
people have passed a great many days of
gratification and delight there; and not
a few constitutions that had been run
down and placed in jeopardy from over
work and too close application to busi
ness, have experienced the good effects
of its pure and bracing breezes, and its
healthful and invigorating sports.
During the past week there was a live
ly revival in fishing, and the catch gen
erally was better than it had been for
several previous weeks. Mr. George W.
Remington, the King of Avalon fisher
men, had an exciting day of it last
Thursday. He and "Bussy" Hamilton
a boy of ten years, after having had rare
sport in hauling yellow tails and rock
bass, baited for "a jew-fish. The boy
held the line whilst Mr. R. continued to
land rock bass. All at once "Bussy" made
a great uproar. He had hooked one of
the jew-fish monsters, and had his choice
of being hauled overboard or let go the
line. He chose to stay in the boat, and
of course Mr. Remington came to the
rescue. That expert fisherman found
that he was fast to a jew-fish of unusual
size, and went to work systematically to
secure him. As the boat was anchored,
the work was one of difficulty. Besides,
the sea was unusually rough, and when
the boat was careened by the pulling
power of the fish, she shipped barrels of
water. For a good half hour the strug
gle lasted. At the end of that time his
submarine ' 'nibs" gave signs of weaken
ing. He was carefully drawn to the
miiface, when he made his last and most
dangerous struggle. But art overcame
: brute force, and the monster was se
cured. When brought ashoro and
landed upon the beach, he was
found to tip the scales at
three hundred pounds. The small boy
who hooked this fine prize stands at least
six feet in his stockings since this hand
some achievement, and observes a sort
of a get-away demeanor ever since to all
other small boys.
The jaunty and handsome little yacht

There is some talk about closing up the

A UOOD GAME.
Aitinls . i (in Day Sport at tbe New
The baseball match between the Tri
bunes and the Pasadenans at the Pros
pect Park grounds yesterday afternoon
was a good one. A large attendance was
present to participate in the sport and it
is evident that the excellent arrange
ments made by the managers of the place
have impressed the public and estab
lished its popularity. In the first inning
of the Pasadena nine they managed to
get five runs, for although Swan was
pitching in first-class style Staxy, who
was catching, could not hold the balls,
fumbling them on many occa
sions. Wooly was therefore put on
behind the bat, and from that time on
the aspect changed, as all that the visit
ors could add to their scoto was two base
hits and two runs. The Pasadenans
played well together, and the work of
their battery was very creditable. Alto
gether the game was a good one through
out, and the closeness of the contest is
evident from the score which ended in
7to 6in favor of Pasadena. The follow
ing were the players:

doubtless accepted. Manager Murdock

SECOND* STREET PARK.
The Programme of Yesterdays
Messrs. Joe Bayer & Co. did not leave
things half done when they made the ar
rangements for the Admission Day enter
tainment at the Second street Park, and
those who visited that place yesterday
went away thoroughly satisfied that they
had had their moneys worth. The sport
commenced at 2 p. m. by a promenade
concert by Meine's band, and then
dancing was indulged in until 5 o'clock,
when there was an intermission for din
ner. When the concourse of spectators
who congregated for the evening fes
tivities reached the ground they
found them piettily illuminated
in the Venetian style, colored
lamps and Chinese lanters being sus
pended in the midst of the surrounding
foliage. At half-past six a promenade ;
concert commenced and this lasted until
8 o'clock when the grand firework dis
play on the lake was announced to take
place. It proved to be a great success, and
Messrs. Wilson Bros., who arranged it,
are to be congratulated for the good work.
It consisted of an anvil salute, rocket as
cents, shells of metoric stars, roman bat
teries, floating swans, floating fountains,
water wheels, floating mines, Niagara
Falls and an ariel harlequinade, and con
cluded with a realistic naval encounter
in which men-of-war torpedoes and mon
itors were introduced with startling
effect. The orchestra then took up its
position in the main hall and struck up
lively dance music to the tune of which
a number of the devotees of Terpscichore
responded and continued the festivities
until past midnight.
Tbe Cricket Match.
The Santa Monicans easily defeated
tbe Los Angeles Club in the cricket
match played between the two teams at
the ocean city yesterday. The scoring
was not particularly good, the top notch
being made by Mr. Terry Hoyle, who
scored 15 for the Los Angeles boys. In
spite of the fact that the teams played 12
a side inside of the customary 11 the
totals of the Los Angeles Club only
reached 21 in the Ist inning and 20 in tbe
2nd. The Santa Monicans made 29 in
the Ist inning and 21 in the 2nd for two
wickets. Messrs. Waring and Carter
bowled for Santa Monica and Messrs.

CRIME AND ACCIDENT.
Harry Coffee Shoots at His
TWO SHOTS THAT DID NOT HIT.
The East Side Water War Still
Baging — A Han With a
An exciting shooting affair occurred
last night in the California Dime Muse
um, on Main street, between First and
Requena. The establishment is owned
by Messrs. Charles A. Doyle and Solo
mon Isaac. Mrs. Kate Coffee, the sister
in-law of Mr. C. A. Doyle, has been
living in the city for fix months, and has
served as ticket-taker at the museum.
Last evening about 8 o'clock her former
husband found his way into the tent and
made a deliberate attempt to murder
her. Harry Coffee was formerly a real
estate solicitor for Bovee, Toy & Co., in
San Francisco, and is a son of Detective
John Coffee, of that city. He took to
drinking heavily, and his wife finally
secured a divorce from him on the
ground of habitual drunkenness. When
his wife came to Los Angeles he followed
her and it is said on a number of occa
sions he has threatened to kill her.
Last evening Arthur Isaacs and Mrs.
Coffee were inside of the tent, seated
near the partition at the front
end, when Harry Coffee entered.
Arthur was about to go out to the
ticket office when they saw Coffee
enter and Katie, who suspected some
thing was about to happen, begged the
young man not to leave her.
"What is the matter?" asked Arthur.
"You don't think he will try to shoot you
As he spoke, Coffee came up holding
his hand behind his back. He was qnite
drunk, and be glared savagely at the
frightened woman before him. Arthur
stood at one side ready to spring at the
slightest suspicious movement. Sud
denly the man pulled a revolver from
his pocket, and exclaiming "I have got
you now!'' he aimed it at her body, not
three feet away. Before he could pmll
the trigger, Arthur Isaacs struck his arm,
and the bullet passed over her shoulder,
the powder slightly burning her face. Aa
Arthur reached for the revolver the man
fired again, but a second time his aim
was destroyed, and the bullet passed
harmlessly out through the roof of the
tent. Mrs. Coffee had sprung up with a
scream, and as soon as Arthur had
wrested the revolver lrom the man's
hand, he ran to see if «he were wounded.
Coffee was about to make his escape,
when Sam Pierce, the special officer of
the establishment arrested him. The
man was brought to the station and en
tered on a charge of assault to murder.
The woman came to the station in a
very excited state, but as she was unin
jured, she soon regained her composure
and gave a clear account of the affair, to
which she and the two other actors were
the only witnesses. The revolver was
obtained at a later hour by Detective Mc-
Carthy, and showed that three cartridges
had been fired from it very recently. It
was the opinion, however, that Coffee
had only fired two shots at his wife.
THE WATER WAR.
The East Side Water Hydrant Again
It am. -tired.
The East Side water war is still active,
and fresh hostilities broke out yesterday.
Some time since the City Council or
dered that a sprinkling hydrant, which
had been attached to a pipe of the East
Side Water Company on Mission road,
be watched day and night by the police
to prevent anyone from moving it. The
hydrant had been placed there by the
Street Superintentdent, acting under the
order from the City Council, for the pur
pose of allowing street sprinklers to be
tilled. Mr. Henry Hazard, of the East
Side Water Company, objected to the
hjdrant and had' it removed, and
it was replaced by the Street Superin
tendent and a policeman placed over it as
a guard. This officer watched one of Mr.
Hazard's men break the bvdrant down
and then arrested him. Acting under
instructions from the City Council the
Street Superintendent replaced the
hydrant again, and the police were in
structed to prevent any one from break
ing it, and not wait until it was broken.
Matters went on in this way until yes
terday, when the officer was fooled by an
employee of the Water Company, and
permitted him to injure the hydrant so
that it cannot be used. The officer
thought the man was repairing the
hydrant, when in reality he was fixing
it so that it would not work. The mat
ter will come up for discussion again in
I the City Council to-day.
A Crushed Hand.
Frank Abbott, a bricklayer who has
been at work on a reservoir in the east
ern part of the county, met with a severe
accident yesterday evening at Alhambra.
He was on his way home and was on the
platform of a car as it passed Alhambra.
In some manner he lost his balance and
fell with his hand on the track. One of
the wheels of tho car passed over his
hand, crushing it horribly. He was
brought to tbe police station, where Dr.
Choate found it necessary to amputate
the hand at the wrist.
